In our continued navigation of collective mourning, Requiem for Black Grief explores the possibilities available for respectively working with the black female subject. Recognizing the valued gestures ritual offers, this performance brings together theories in accompaniment, wakework, and performance studies to explore how a requiem acts as a commemorative mass for the dead. Using spect-actorship (Boal), breathwork, and opera, Requiem for Black Grief asks audience members to hold space for the survivance of black women to highlight how agential grief manifests by feeling, singing, and being with one another.
